"I walked out to where the wooden patio ended and the deck dropped off precipitously. I hugged my arms to my chest and gazed out into the startingly blue sky and the vinyards unfurling below me.

-Charle Bukowki "Strokes to Nowhere"Hot Water Music
"What was the future? The future was a solid wall not promising, not threatening - all bunk. No guarantees of anything, not even the the guarantee that life isn't one big joke."
-Bob Dylan, Chronicles
"It is awfully easy to be hard-boiled about everything in the daytime, but at night it is another thing."
-Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises
